Columbia River Harley Davidson Trip

Columbia River Harley

Columbia River Highway – Here’s a series of photos from 1927, ten years after the opening of the Historic Columbia River Highway, showing a young man and his Harley Davidson motorcycle.

One of the photos clearly shows road signs with familiar destinations – Portland, Sandy, Bull Run, Gresham, Troutdale and the Columbia River Highway. The best part of the photo is the additional temporary sign that reads “Columbia River Highway Closed To Through Traffic” placed in on top of one of the road’s stone and concrete guard rails. The second one shows some stone rubble along a roadway which looks much like a winter day at unstable spots along the old road today.
